104th Constitution Amendment Act
The 104th CAA eliminated the reserved seats for the Anglo-Indian community from the Lok Sabha and state assembly as well as increased the reservation of seats for SCs and STs from 70 to 80 years. The 103rd Constitution Amendment Act granted EWS a 10% reservation, at the most. The National Commission for Backward Classes (NCBC) now has constitutional status thanks to the 102nd Constitution Amendment Act. The Goods and Services Tax (GST) was instituted by the 101st Constitution Amendment Act.
The amendment does not extend the period of reservation of two Lok Sabha seats and State Legislative Assemblies seats reserved for Anglo-Indian Community members and hence the practice of nominating two members of the Anglo-Indian community by the Indian President under the Indian Prime Minister recommendation was effectively abolished.
